    Celtic Show Racism The Red Card

    By: Newsroom Staff on 06 Oct, 2019 12:06

  • EVERYONE at Celtic is proudly supporting Show Racism the Red Card’s Fortnight of Action.

    Many of you will have seen the campaign within football for many years, the SPFL and its member clubs have been supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland 16 years ago.

    In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC’s work in Scotland, the Fortnight of Action from October 4 to October 20, shows commitment at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game.

    All professional clubs will show their support over one weekend – Friday, October 4 to Sunday October 6. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and society. Players in over 40 European countries are involved in similar events as part of FARE network against racism and discrimination.

    Celtic is delighted to be a club open to all since its formation in 1888 and will always promote diversity, inclusion and tolerance,  all of which are dear to our heart

    We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message; it is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond the Fortnight of Action and beyond the terraces.

    Celtic captain and Show Racism the Red Card Ambassador, Scott Brown today gave the campaign his full support.

    He said: “Celtic has been open to all since its formation in 1888 and we welcome everyone to be part of our great club.  

    “It has been a privilege to be a player and captain at Celtic for so many years and fantastic to know we are a club which has always had openness and diversity at its core, important value which we will always promote.

    “At all times, it is important that we continue to send the strongest message that discrimination of any kind has no place in football or society. Our club and the entire Celtic team are once again delighted to support this year’s Show Racism the Red Card campaign.”

    Show Racism the Red Card are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair, inclusive and accessible for all.

    Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.
